"Shaking with anger or nerves I couldn't tell you, but speaking clearly and with dignity, she said to Powell: 'I have been there, I have seen the Israelis demolishing houses on people's heads. It is the occupation, sir, the occupation.' Powell's friendly smile turned to a scowl and he shot back 'I'm trying to end all that.' He turned away from the woman and seized my hand in a firm grip, hoping perhaps I would provide some relief. 'Mr Powell,' I said, 'I have just one question...'
I didn't get to ask it though, as I was pulled back by a secret service agent. Powell stood, turned and was quickly ushered from the room."
